Manziel eyeing a coaching career?
Johnny Manziel's professional football career might already be over, but the former Texas A&M star still hopes to stay involved with the game even if his NFL comeback fails.
At the International Football Betting Conference in Costa Rica, Manziel was asked about what he would like to do if his NFL career is, in fact, done for good. According to CBS Sports, Manziel said he would likely return to college, possibly as a coach.
In an interview with Fox Sports' Clay Travis, Manziel said,
"I'd do something involved with sports. I can't get away from it," he said. "I've had to ask myself that a little bit as of late over the past year, but at the same time, I'd want to be involved in sports in some way, whether it's coaching, whether it's doing something like that. So I think that'd be my route."
During his discussion Manziel noted that the Canadian Football League was something he has looked into, although his primary goal is to get back into the NFL.
Manziel, who was selected by Cleveland with the 22nd overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft, has not played in the league since being released by the Browns in March of 2016.
